Your Employee Giving Campaign


This annual giving campaign is just for Oswego Health employees. It supports the efforts of Oswego Health to provide quality, accessible care to the community through all of its affiliates. In one way or another, philanthropy touches the lives of every one of our patients, every donation, no matter what size, makes an impact.

undefinedI like to give to organizations that make a difference in the communities they serve, and Oswego Health is vitally important for the residents of Oswego and surrounding areas. Giving to Oswego Health allows me to show my appreciation to the organization that supports me and my family, as well as the community. It allows employees to have access to needed items that are otherwise unbudgeted. Whether it be through education for staff, state-of the-art laboratory equipment, or items that provide comfort to patients and their families, the patient experience benefits in some way, directly or indirectly.
Pat Fasulo, Anatomical Pathology Supervisor

Your gift matters.

Together with the gifts from individuals, corporate and foundation partners, employee gifts make a significant impact for the future and sustainability of healthcare in our community. By being a part of the We are the First Step Campaign, employees partner together to support each other, our patients and our residents and their families.

undefinedI give to Oswego Health for a number of reasons. Having quality healthcare available locally is important to me. Oswego Health has always been here for me and family members who have needed care and I want that to continue. It takes a tremendous burden off of a family to be local and not have to worry about driving to Syracuse when a loved one is sick. Oswego Health has a pulse on the needed healthcare services in our community and continues to expand to meet the needs of our residents. I feel it is important tosupport local businesses and keep them here and continue to grow our area.I am also thankful to be able to have a job in my own community.
Sandy Nettles, Director of Patient Financial Services

undefinedAs an Oswego Health employee, I am very proud to be participating in the “We Are The First Step” employee giving program. I strongly believe it is our commitment to our community healthcare system that will allow us to continue on our path of becoming stronger and stronger for the residents of Oswego County. This program is an avenue to help this process along. It benefits our patients and families in every aspect and has such an impact on improving health, technology and awareness of Oswego Health and all that we do in our area. This is a wonderful way to look out for our future.
